I don't think Obama wants to spend political capital on gun control


Everyone knows that Congress isn't doing anything. Unless another crime like Sandy Hook occurs I predict this entire topic will be old news in a few weeks, if not before. I think there are other topics more important to Obama that he is willing to fight for.

I agree 100% he was forced into this by the massacre, he then gave the job to his lackey Joe. He's gearing up for the debt ceiling. That said I don't think it'd make much of a difference if he did try to corral support. I don't see him and congress agreeing on anything, Regardless of the consequences.

I certainly hope this is correct but I fear the neo-cons are going to force the issue until they become viable again.

I think he knows it won't pass but he wants to be able to tell the Democratic base that he "gave it the old college try".

Agreed. Additionally its slow news and this is a hot topic. Like any other contraversial topic its good for selling papers and getting site traffic.

I think in this case the Obama admin. thinks it looks alot better failing than not addressing the tragedy at all.

So, you think he's going to cave on Gun Control to show how reasonable he is?

King Barack I doesn't want to spend any capital NOW. But each time we have a mass shooting, he will attempt to introduce more and more strict gun laws than what have already been passed. It's a slow trickle.

But you are correct for the time being. King Barack I is punting on gun control so he can work up the Alinsky style tactics for the upcoming issues of immigration and the debt ceiling.
